Cut the toothpicks in half using whatever you wish. Then, stick the toothpicks in the body as shown below. Then attatch the limbs to the body so it looks natural.

Ask yourself these questions. Does it look right? Did you switch a leg and arm? Did you put in a piece upside-down? Do all the parts move?
